Longtime KWQC (Davenport) anchor Gary Metivier announced he's leaving the station.
Metivier made the announcement on the 6 p.m. newscast and on social media.
He joined the station 20 years ago, but now says he's leaving for a new journey.
Now that their sons “are preparing to go off on their own journeys,” he said, “it is time for us to begin a new journey too. To take a leap of faith. To explore and pursue new opportunities. To share inspiring stories and share our talents. We feel God has a plan for us.”
For two decades, he told viewers, “You have blessed us with your loyalty, your kind words and your caring sense of community. It has been such an honor to be able to be your news guy.”
